Snoop Dogg, like most Pittsburgh Steelers fans, is fed up with Steelers kicker Josh Scobee right about now.

Pittsburgh acquired Scobee from the Jacksonville Jaguars in a preseason trade, but that deal hasn't gone so well. The 12th-year kicker entered Week 4 having made just four of his six field-goal attempts (and four of five extra-point attempts) through the first three weeks of the 2015 season. 

Thursday night at Heinz Field would not be a good one for the veteran kicker.

Scobee (barely) made his first two field-goal attempts of the matchup with the Baltimore Ravens, but when clutch time came, he couldn't come through for his team. With Pittsburgh holding on to a 20-17 lead, he missed a 49-yard field-goal attempt with two minutes and 29 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and a 41-yard attempt with 1:06 to play in regulation.

Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion)—a Steelers fan—had had enough by the second miss.

The Ravens went on to win in overtime 23-20. Ouch.
